Highlights of quali & the race on C4
The boy is right. Qualifying shown today on C4 at 12.00 - 13.30 with the race highlights tomorrow, also C4, 14.00 - 16.00. Two hours of highlights, is that possible? I'd have thought 15 mins would have covered it given the predominantly boring, processional rubbish of most years. Sky has all the live events, but C4 will be showing the British GP live.

Trouble is, I already no the result :?

Fantastic, you must be clairvoyant as the race doesn't start for around another 15 hours. If I were you I'd place a mega bet on the result.

That is sooooo sneaky, you've told us you already no the result, yet you'd like to relieve this pensioner of his hard earned euro. Typical. The odds on Leclerc winning are currently 9/2, which seems amazing. What are you waiting for?

Don't like the ch4 version, better when on BBc1. However if recorded its easy to miss out all the rubbish.

Only 4 weeks until we see the Barcelona GP, really looking forward to seeing it "live".

Its suffering from the deal with Sky. Last year Channel 4 highlights were probably better than the BBC's previously - this year the deals stitched them totally - they can't do pit walks - can't interview drivers after the race - the highlights can only be so long and can only form a set percentage of the broadcast. Now its really patchy. Presenters aren't as good as last year and they're stringing out the filler a lot more.

Could be worse - try Sky .....

I can't stand Martin Brundle.

The bloke is an arsë

Which is why I won't watch Sky F1

C4 coverage last year was excellent.

Sky has killed F1.

Ain’t that the truth? I have a friend who is an avid F1 fan and regularly spends a king’s ransom to watch F1 events live. She said of the China F1 GP “watching paint dry is more interesting”. Today’s Azerbaijan F1 GP was just a tad better. Whole thing is a bloody bore, no matter how much Steve Jones and the execrable Eddie Jordan try to big it up on C4.
